Seesmic adds proxy support and UI improvements

As long as there is no official app for Twitter, I will continue to swap 3rd party clients pretty much every month. My most recent selection has been Seesmic, which our readers voted as their favorite last month (by a wide margin).

So far I have enjoyed Seesmic for its simple navigation, speedy performance, and multi account support. I also like the regular updates that come about once a month (I’m looking at you Twidroid). Those most recent update includes some nice UI tweaks (like improved notifications) and adds proxy support.

Seesmic says they will have a separate post to go into more details on the proxy support so I’m interested to see where that goes. They are releasing a Seesmic SDK for their desktop client, so it looks like plugin support could find its way to the Android client.

The list of Seesmic updates includes:

  • Improvement to notifications (new icon, count of messages in icon and bug fixes)
  • Tap on the top red bar to jump to the top of any timeline (with tutorial)
  • Proxy support, on a per account basis
  • SSL support, on a per account basis
  • User Interface fixes, including for Motorola Blur OS
  • Added a setting to automatically launch the application at startup of the phone (Settings > Advanced)

If you have never used Seesmic for Twitter, give the new version a spin. If you already have it installed then I suggest checking out some other new clients (like Touiteur or Twicca). For an insanely detailed Twitter app comparison chart go visit Androinica and read Andrew’s take on 13 different clients.
